FLIR Systems, Inc. designs, develops, manufactures, markets, and distributes technologies that enhance perception and awareness.
FLIR bring innovative sensing solutions into daily life through their thermal imaging systems, visible-light imaging systems, locator systems, measurement and diagnostic systems, and advanced threat detection systems.
Today FLIR advanced systems and components are used for a wide variety of thermal imaging, situational awareness, and security applications, including airborne and ground-based surveillance, condition monitoring, navigation, recreation, research and development, manufacturing process control, search and rescue, drug interdiction, transportation safety and efficiency, border and maritime patrol, environmental monitoring, and chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosives threat detection.
The GF-343 is an optical gas imaging camera that lets you see CO2 leaks quickly, easily, and from a safe distance.
Whether CO2 is a byproduct of a production process, a trace gas used to detect leaks from power generators, or as part of an Enhanced Oil Recovery program, fast and accurate detection of CO2 leaks is key to keeping your operation running safely, efficiently, and profitably.
Visually Detects CO2 Gas Leaks in Real Time
Use safer CO2 as tracer gas to localize leaks and verify repairs quickly, easily, and reliably
Cover the same area as traditional methods in 99% less of the time
A thermal imaging camera for optical gas imaging visualizes and pinpoints gas leaks without the need to shut down the operation. The portable camera also greatly improves operator safety, by detecting gases at a safe distance, and helps to protect the environment by tracing leaks of environmentally harmful gases.
Using a Gas Detection camera you get a complete picture and can immediately exclude areas that do not need any action. This means you can achieve enormous savings in terms of time and personnel.
Gas sniffers versus thermal imaging cameras
In a complex petrochemical facility there may be many thousands of potential leak paths. Some may be leaking but most will not. Conventional leak detection equipment such as a Volatile Organic Compound meters (or sniffers) mean that the operator must visit and test each potential leak site. Each item must therefore be accessible or made accessible to be tested. Gas sniffers may expose inspectors to invisible and potentially harmful chemicals.
Using gas detection cameras allows the user to examine many potential leak sources in a short time and from a distance.
Infrared thermometers vs thermal imaging cameras
Infrared (IR) thermometers are reliable and very useful for single-spot temperature readings, but, for scanning large areas or components, it’s easy to miss critical components that may be near failure and need repair.
